Actually I bought X for my wife, and I'm thinking to buy the X performance. Xperia UI and Marshmallow is so much better than the ios to me

I did also like it though......it was a cool unique feature of the Z series phones. But I honestly don't see they would bring it back unless the phone came with the cable AND it was like QC 3.0-ready.
One thing I didn't like with the S7's wireless charging was that if you didn't have it like pretty much RIGHT on the center, it wouldn't charge. A bunch of times I noticed it would start out charging then I guess if it still wasn't "centered" enough, the phone would shortly later STOP charging and if you didn't check it for hours (like overnight while you're sleeping) you wouldn't know 'til MUCH later that it never finished charging. I'd rather just use a cable. lol

Anyways, the magnetic Dock was and still is a unique Xperia feature....
Hope they return to it in some future

I used to use the magnetic charging feature on my Z3, but now that's gone and I wouldn't use it if I could on the XP since I have QC 3.0.

A superb extra feature.
Dont understand why Sony canceled it though. :-/

Do you only have this issue with the XP? Have you tried it on other phones with a fingerprint sensor? It may not just be the XP that does this.
2 things stop me on buying this handset:
1. Fingerprints doesn't work when my finger is wet as my sweater
2. While fingerprint unlock doesn't work on passcode screen. It become useless when you click to reply a message from the lockscreen notification, then the passcode pr pattern appear and fingerprint doesn't work. i dont want other see my passcode when I have fingerprint
Vj14, 24 Aug 2016I thought it's a huge hit for S7 :oYeah because MOST people don't know about the heat issue. 3 years ago when it was new I was NUTS for wireless charging. Then I found that out and decided it wasn't so great after all. Fact is I can buy a QC 3.0 home charger for $12 on Amazon (and I did), but the QC 3.0 wireless ones are like $18 and up. More money just to wear down my batter quicker? No thanks.
Arian Adler, 24 Aug 2016Hi Wireless charging = damage your phone battery! Only outcome 4 ur phone battery! ...I thought it's a huge hit for S7 :o

I guess there are, but still, the heat point is something that should be factored in, ESP if you plan on keeping your phone more than 1 year.
Vj14, 24 Aug 2016No Wireless Charging? :(
Wireless charging isn't all that great. The heat from the charger being in DIRECT contact with the back of the phone has been said to wear down the phone battery even faster than usual. And unless you pay like $40-$80 for the QC 2.0 charger, it will be regular charging, not QC. Also, the XP CANNNN handle QC 3.0 (don't believe those who say otherwise, I own the phone and Sony's UCH12 QC charger ISSS a 3.0 charger per Sony's website), and since there are no QC 3.0 wireless chargers, you won't be able to take advantage of that with wireless charging.
So just get yourself a QC 3.0 wall and/or home charger, and enjoy the phone!
Arian Adler, 23 Aug 2016Hi
Sound quality in X.performance :
So far better than htc 10
Not sure about that one. The HTC 10's amp/DAC has been getting a ton of praise, where I haven't really heard all that much about the XP's, but some say it's up there or just as good. I had the 10 before the XP, so I couldn't compare them side by side. If anyone has any more info on this, please share. It's not something I can easily just look up online at this point.

Trever, 21 Aug 2016C'mon guys, knock it off!! It's becoming boring reading the reviews here, if you don't like it... moreI can agree with some of that. However, will assume it's the comments and not the reviews themselves you meant when you said you were getting bored?
Yes people should make their purchase based on what suits their own personal preferences best, that is in fact exactly what I do.
It's when such people then start claiming their smartphone of choice is then the best smartphone ever, whilst talking constant Cr*p about the competition (like using their devices as paperweight's for example).
They will quite happily do this yet claim foul when their own precious smartphone of choice comes in for critique, write it off as 'trolling' and play the victim.
Sorry if you can't see the contradiction and double standards present here.
